The Appalachian Cultural Music Association, or ACMA, is based in Bristol, Tennessee; its core mission is to “preserve the rich cultural music heritage of the Appalachian Mountains…,” a region in the United States considered to be the birthplace of country music.
The ACMA is an offshoot of the BCMA (Birthplace of Country Music Alliance), and was founded by former BCMA officers Tim White, James Bryant, and Rita Forrester to fulfill the more specific mission of Appalachian mountain music history preservation and education.
“To preserve and promote bluegrass, old time, gospel, classic country, and Appalachian style music and provide education through jam sessions, instructional workshops, concerts, community festivals, and provide a music alternative to traditional school bands. To support the Pickin’ Porch, Song of the Mountains, Mountain Music Museum, the Carter Fold and other local venues of like ideas.”
“Pickin’ Porch“ is a two-hour live music show at the Mountain Music Museum featuring guest performers and hosted by Tim White. The performances are bluegrass and “old time music.” The show takes place on Mondays at 7pm, and is free to the public with an optional donation of $5 at the guest’s discretion to benefit the ACMA.
“Song of the Mountains” is a syndicated public television show that showcases live performances of bluegrass, gospel, Americana and old time music of Appalachia, recorded live at The Lincoln Theatre in Marion, Virginia. The show is also hosted by Tim White, and has run since 2006.
The Mountain Music Museum is sponsored by the ACMA and is located in the same building as the association. The museum houses musical instruments, artifacts, and other donated items that came from generations of families from the Appalachian region, (mainly from the mountain range that spans the states of Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, and North Carolina.)
